About the book:

For you, who wants to increase your ability to help people around you

This book is a practical guide on using specifically selected, simple psychotherapeutic methods in supportive dialogues, whether in a kitchen, on a hiking trip or at a patient’s bedside.

It could be when a good friend ends up in a bitter divorce, your spouse has problems, or a person at your workplace grieves. Asking the right questions is much more important than having the right answers.

In this book, best-selling author Ilse Sand shares her life-long experience helping others through conversation. She provides specific tools for asking beneficial questions, dealing with shame and fear, finding a more intimate and heartfelt way to talk about the problem, and focusing on life principles that box up another person. These techniques can give you and whomever you’re helping more space, meaning, and direction in life.

You can also use the tools in the book in your own life.
